Not Your Parent’s Avocado Green: Colored Appliances for 2019 & Beyond

Although neutral kitchens with white and grey color schemes continue to reign supreme, there has been an increased clamoring for pops of color to be incorporated in the kitchen. Homeowners and designers alike are becoming bolder in their choices for many areas of the kitchen including cabinetry, tile and, yes, appliances.

Boldly colored appliances were on display at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas this past February. Here we got a firsthand look at these new products hitting the market, some in bright, vibrant hues captured our attention.

Smeg appliances are available in a variety of colors

The Italian appliance manufacturer, Smeg, showcased their kitchen appliances and gadgets in a wide array of colors including bright yellow, orange, red and olive green. With gas ranges, range hoods and refrigerators available, you could purchase a whole collection to really make your kitchen pop, or a single appliance as a stand-alone feature. Consider choosing crisp white cabinetry paired with these colorful appliances for a fun, up to the minute look.

If a bright color is too daring for you, consider creating a unique look with white, gold and black appliances. These are different enough from your typical stainless steel to take center stage, but subtle enough for the conservative taste. BlueStar ranges and range hoods, also on display at KBIS, featured white with gold accents as well as black with gold. These would coordinate beautifully with a variety of cabinetry styles and finishes.

Color is one of the easiest ways to give your home personality, and while these lively appliances may not be for everyone, for those willing to take a risk, they can be a successful way to make a statement.
